Empowering families with secure employment is a vital pillar of the program for economic mobility. Through partnerships with employers, workforce development centers, and education organizations, EDEN leads professionalism workshops, job training session, career placement, and career growth strategies. The program emphasizes roles that are "Cori-and re-entry friendly," and provides avenues for growth without stringent educational requirements.
EDEN connects participants with adult learning experience and classroom/online training for obtaining jobs in fields such as Certified Nursing Assistant, home health aid, construction and customer service. Participants are matched with jobs that are compatible with their skill levels, aptitude, and interest. EDEN partners with local organizations such as Boston Medical Center to then help participants directly find jobs.
